Places for Rossborough Healthcare’s Free Health Check Day, which is taking place on 7th June, are now fully subscribed, with many islanders on the waiting list.
The free event, organised by healthcare insurance broker, Rossborough Healthcare, offered around 250 free consultations, which were snapped up by health conscious islanders within two weeks of the event being announced. Islanders who are still keen to have a free health check are being asked to contact Rossborough Healthcare to join the waiting list.
'Unfortunately we have now reached capacity for our inaugural free health check day, but are inviting islanders who have not had a chance to register, to contact us in order to join the waiting list. We were anticipating a high demand for the event and whilst disappointed that there will be a number of people we cannot accommodate, we are of course delighted to have had such a positive response and that the event has filled up so quickly. When setting our vision for the event, it was always with a view to making it something that we can repeat in the future should the demand be strong enough, so that is certainly something we will now be looking to do.' said Richard Clarke, Manager at Rossborough Healthcare.
The event is being sponsored by AXA-PPP International, Aviva and Simplyhealth, three of the island’s most established providers of private medical insurance policies, and will be supported by the Island Medical Centre and Island Pharmacy. Three leading Jersey health charities, Diabetes Jersey, Jersey Heart Support Group and Donna Annand Melanoma Charity, will also be present on the day to provide support and advice to those taking part.
The event organisers are asking all islanders who have signed up but can’t make their appointment to contact Rossborough Healthcare to confirm cancellation. This will provide individuals on the waiting list with a chance of attending on a first-come, first-served basis.
To join the waiting list or to cancel your appointment please contact Richard Clarke or Lorraine Tubbs on 01534 500555 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
